CC491 Friendship's Journey
Here is the second card that I created using this week’s CC491 “Blackberry Saffron Bay”colors at Splitcoaststampers along with the SC500 Sketch Challenge (to use one of the sketches from SC400-SC499- I chose SC435 and flipped the sketch upright) :-)
This card also has the has “dessert” to add a sentiment – you have to look close (below the rolled flowers) to see the “love” banner :-)
If you have not had a chance to do, I hope that you will take a moment to visit the gallery for inspiration, create your own card with this week’s colors and join in on the fun!
To create this card:
Ink the focal using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the images using an AquaPainter™ with Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss and So Saffron Classic Ink and add additional details with the corresponding Stampin’ Write markers.
Use the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker to add shadows, trim and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.
Ink the retired background stamp, En Francais using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of retired I Am Me Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss the stamped DSP panel. Lightly sand with the Sanding Block, trim and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, trim and mount onto the Bermuda Bay card base.
Trim a piece of Park Lane DSP to create two squares and mount onto pieces of Bermuda Bay cardstock and add to the background panel (per the sketch).
Mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Create the rolled roses from Blackberry Bliss cardstock using the 2 3/8” and 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punch – cut a wavy line from the outside of the scallop toward the center. Use the retired Crimper Tool to crimp the roses and roll up toward the center. Use a Hot Glue Gun to adhere the outside edges to the center part of the scallop- here is a basic tutorial from Splitcoaststampers.
Stamp the banner from the retired Banner Blast stamp set using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink, punch out with the Banner Punch , mount onto a banner punched from Bermuda Bay cardstock and add to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Punch the leaves from Bermuda Bay cardstock using the Bird Builder Punch. Using the Hot Glue Gun, add the leaves with the rolled roses to the front of the card.
